If you analyze the photo you will notice that gun violence is not the subject of just one area in Philadelphia, it has taken over the whole city As you see below it is a recurring issue, one hand to the other. From the easy access of guns which gun laws provide; that leads to the death of innocent people which results in even more guns. The reason more guns is the final result is because people the innocent lives lost’ family members result to gun violence also. I lived right next door to the mother of a police officer who died in the
* Secondly, if they dont get license and some test before buying a gun Everybody will try to ensure his protection by his handgun and the trust to police and the crimes will increase. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, roughly 30,000 people are killed by guns in the U.S. each year, either accidentally or by suicide or homicide. Deaths involving guns occur far more frequently in the
S&W also is the top manufactuer of handcuffs in the United States and is trying to push its way into other sporting markets including knives and bicycles (Smith & Wesson, 2013). The S&W brand was severely tarnished in the early 1990’s when the company, then owned by british people, conspired with the Clinton administration to impose fangled and unreliable safety features on all firearms sold (Austin, 2013). This resulted in a ban on all S&W products by gun consumers in America that almost destroyed the company. The company was then sold and the brand has since partially recovered. There are still many people who feel S&W markets their products too heavily towards law enforcement, which when coupled with the memory of their push for biometric technology being implemented into every handgun sold makes them untrustworthy.
In March 1998, by which time he had already killed well over 200 people, a police investigation was begun—but quickly abandoned. It was not until Shipman decided to forge the will of one of his victims in June 1998 that a thorough investigation took place, leading to his arrest three months later. Since beginning to investigate Shipman in 2000, I have been trying to understand how it was that he could kill so many patients without detection. There were, of course, some system failures, but it has been impossible to avoid the question as to why the system weaknesses were tolerated to the extent that Shipman was able to murder not merely one or two patients, but over 200. The conclusion I have come to is that all doctors, and not general practitioners alone, share responsibility for creating the circumstances that enabled Shipman to be so successful a killer.
The federal government has awarded grants to police departments in excess of $34 billion dollars since 2011 to purchase military equipment. The author believes that this military appearance of the police is pushing the citizens away from being able to trust in the police to protect them during events such as the one in Ferguson, Missouri. While I can see the author’s point of view on this, I can’t help but to disagree. I believe that it shouldn’t matter how the police are dressed or what kind of weapons they are carrying. Obeying the law all boils down to one thing.
15 years have passed since the infamous “Columbine High School Massacre” of 1999, where two secluded high school seniors murdered 12 students and 1 high school teacher. This tragic event , and the death of 30 000 other people due to gun violence each year, sparked a large debate over gun control laws in the US which still exists to this day and seems unlikely to simmer-down any time soon. In In the critically acclaimed documentary “Bowling For Columbine”, Michael Moore explores the roots of Americans fascination of guns. This documentary can easily be viewed as fully objective as Moore does not choose sides between gun control or civil rights, but instead tackles what is the cause of such fondness of this awful culture. This documentary heavily revolves around the idea that the main cause of gun violence in America is due to so many American’s being immersed in a culture of fear.
The development of technology and the tactics to make them effective over the period of time is why less than 10 million people died in the first world war while over 60 million died in the second world war. I believe technology is good until it kills you. Just like everything has it own pros and cons so does technology, During the war the developments of new weapons might’ve helped countries win the war but instead it kills the people of your own country. The will to win, the crave succeed, the urge to reach your full potential is what makes countries go in an intense manner where they create weapons which could probably harm their own people and considering their irresistible temptation to win, the opposing force becomes motivated to even newer technologies, and the succession is never
However, as the war went on, the king’s money dwindled away, and Parliament raised taxes, therefore they had more money than the king. London was probably the most important place in the whole battle, without this, the parliamentarians probably wouldn’t have won. London had a large population and they mostly supported parliament. It was also an extremely wealthy place compared to the areas that the king owned (Wales, Cornwall and Northern England). London kept the parliamentarians supplied with soldiers and weapons for the entire war, and if the king took control of it, Parliament would certainly have lost.
There are both pros and cons in having accessibility to assault weapons, but I believe that sale of assault weapons should be banned. The Batman premiere was held at the Century 16 movie theater in Aurora, Colorado, where 12 people in the audience were killed and 59 were left wounded. Holmes entered the theater dressed as the Joker from the first Batman movie in Christopher Nolan’s trilogy. The question of Holmes’s sanity has to be examined. Did Nolan’s dark character’s aid in Holmes’s loss of his ability to distinguish fantasy from reality.
The first major engagement in Ia Drang may have proved ultimately to be an American victory, but it presented the fact that fighting the VC would not be won through area wars, but purely a through test of which side could drain enemy troop numbers fastest in an attritional war. The VC was able to conscript up to 200,000 men a year, outnumbering the US. These were not just typical soldiers, they were fighting a war for freedom which had been going on for centuries, and this contributed to their overall passion and perseverance in the face of a much more advanced enemy. In comparison the standard American troop was conscripted via a date of birth drafting system, and kept in Vietnam for a year. Many troops were not committed to their duty in Vietnam and did not always see why they were actually putting their lives on the line.
